Happy birthday, Beyoncé! The Destiny’s Child-turned-diva is 31 today, and all day we racked our brains for the best way to pay tribute. We already obsessively follow her Tumblr, make up endless conspiracy theories about baby Blue Ivy, and track her friendships with the likes of Kim Kardashian. Then we realized that something that has always drawn us to Bey is her charisma and incredible dance moves… and what better way to showcase both than with a list of .gifs? We pulled these from Tumblr and tried to vary things up, ranging from eye-popping music videos, to the .gifs that launched all the Blue Ivy theories, to Beyoncé just laughing and emoting like nobody’s business.
Enjoy these and feel free to share your own in the comments!
Coming out in style.
Aww, her laugh is adorable.
Her videos make our eyes hurt in the best way.
And then things get emotional.
Remember that time Bey was ghetto?

No, wait, this was the baby .gif that had everyone up in arms.
But no matter what conspiracy theories we make up about Blue Ivy, we’ll always believe in how incredible Beyoncé looks while dancing.
Um, I have no idea what this is, but it seems to be something of a meme. I ran into a couple of these on the “Beyonce .gifs” Tumblr page… Just gonna present it without further comment.
And finally, a thank-you to all the members of her “Beyhive.”
